Dress Code

👔 Uniform Dress Code Policy

The school has the responsibility to promote the basic rules of sanitation, safety, neatness, and modesty while on campus. Research has demonstrated that schools with dress codes set a tone for serious study, facilitate school pride, and enhance overall school safety. The uniform policy may be subject to change upon notification of parents throughout the school year. All modifications and changes are up to the discretion of the principal and administrative staff as needs arise.
